About this Workshop
This workshop gives attendees a solid understanding of both the industry pressures that brought about OIS discounting as well as quantitative and technical challenges to adopting the methodology.
This popular course has been designed, and is delivered, by Ben Watson, a well-known and much sought-after expert on OIS in the Asia-Pacific region. It has been split into 2 days (OIS Discounting and Counterparty Credit Risk) and the modules can be taken separately or together.
Since the global financial crisis, many of the assumptions underpinning the foundation of modern finance have been critically examined and questioned. One of the major changes to emerge is the use of OIS for discounting.
OIS Discounting is rapidly becoming the market standard for valuing OTC derivatives where collateral is used to mitigate credit risk. It does, however, represent a large organisational change for any organisation to undertake.
Ben Watson uses his extensive experience to ensure course participants come away understanding the business drivers behind OIS discounting and are equipped with the knowledge necessary to build an OIS curve as well as measure and manage CSA risk.
